Via Photoshopping Labia to Comply with "Obscenity" Laws in Australia | Betty Dodson with Carlin Ross:


LABIAPLASTY: Hungry Beast, ABC1 from Ali Russell on Vimeo.

I found that via

  1. This has to be one of the weirdest "controversies" imaginable... It reminds me of the story of Ruskin being rendered impotent when he found that women have hair "down there" (yeah, I know it's a legend). Still... while personal taste has a place here, but heck, gals got 'em, guys want 'em... what reasonable person would freak about a bit of skin... and who doesn't like a bit of skin?

      I could go into a capitalism rant about how this benefits the plastic surgery industry. But I guess I just did.
